In brief: Repeat / start worup

High sgot/liver enyzme levels are quite common but do need a workup.
Causes range from having gotten drunk a few days previous to taking iboprofen to lack of physical fitness to life-threatening, treatable illnesses like viral or autoimmune hepatitis / hemochromatosis / wilson's / drug allergy. Your physician knows the right way to proceed for you.
